  • Sallette Thompson, PsyD

     I was raised in Philadelphia but moved to Alaska in my 20’s. In 1992, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I moved to Atlanta, GA in 1993 and obtained a Master of Arts (MA) and a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology from Georgia School of Professional Psychology. I completed my Internship at Southern Arizona Psychology Internship Consortium in Tucson, AZ with an emphasis in Community Mental Health. After obtaining my Doctorate, I returned to Fairbanks where I practiced for ten years in many different settings including working in remote “bush” areas, as part of the Fetal Alcohol Diagnostic team for the Northern Region, as part of the Governor’s Council for Disabilities and Special Education, and in private practice. I have continued a diverse psychology practice in Colorado for the past 15 years.Even after practicing psychology for 25 years, I wake up every day excited to come to work. The passion and excitement that I bring to my profession translates into our work together. Education and training are very important, but I do not claim to have all of the answers. It is my philosophy that we walk the path together for a period of time and I help guide you to the answers that you carry within yourself. Also, mutual trust and respect are absolutely essential for a successful therapeutic relationship. It is your job to determine if I am someone that you will be able to trust with your innermost thoughts, feelings, fears, and struggles. I am acutely aware of the courage it can take to begin therapy.One major area of focus in my practice has been working with those individuals who have experienced trauma whether it be a single traumatic even or repeated traumatic experiences. I take an eclectic whole person approach (ie mind, body, spirit) to treating trauma and the lingering aftereffects of anxiety, depression, disassociation, sleep disturbances, hypervigilance, and intrusive thoughts. We can explore Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, Brain Synchronization Therapy, EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and other techniques that have proven successful of reducing the impact of trauma on the individual.Other areas of expertise that I have developed include working with individuals who experience phobias, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, grief and loss, complicated bereavement, and terminal illness. I am a strong ally to the LGBTQIA community and have worked fairly extensively with individuals who are transitioning or have transitioned.I feel honored to learn from you and to walk the path together.
